New York Daily News | John Harper: Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline says that the Yankees have a better farm system than their crosstown rivals right now, despite Greg Bird and Luis Severino graduating to the big league level. | Brendan Kuty: Despite getting off to a rough start in his Triple-A debut, Yankees prospect Aaron Judge isn't worried about how he will perform going forward. Judge has already been in Tampa working on improving his pitch recognition.

New York Post | Dan Martin: Brian Cashman revealed that his reasoning behind the Yankees announcing Aroldis Chapman as their closer over Andrew Miller is that Miller has experience in other relief roles whereas Chapman does not.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Jennings discusses a multitude of topics with the main one being that the Yankees were not impressed at workouts for Kieran Powell, the cricketer trying to break into MLB. The scouting report seems to be that the defense is bad and the power is non-existent.
